VEGA is involved in current and future European EO programmes and is committed to supporting their successful development.

Our involvement to date includes providing technical and management support to many EO projects, from early technical work on GMES for the multi-mission ground segment systems implementation, to developing tools such as EOLI. We are also involved in Medspiration programme and undertaking studies on industrial capability across Europe and Canada.
VEGA has also been using its in-depth
knowledge of the EO industrial base to champion the evolution of the diverse community of small and medium sized companies that have contributed so much to the early development of GMES information services. Figure 1 below demonstrates the areas in which VEGA has expertise and capabilities to support the GMES programme.

EOLI – On behalf of ESA, VEGA has developed Earthnet On LIne, a platform independent multi-satellite tool allowing easy and standardised access to various types of EO information such as image and product catalogues. In addition to the standard query functions EOLI manages multi-mission product orders and offers a host of specialised GIS features.
Medspiration – is the European component of the international GODAE (Global Ocean Data Assimilation Experiment) High Resolution SST Pilot Project. During the development phase of this project, VEGA has been working with a consortium to provide software development, project management and quality control expertise.
